Roo protestors digging up the bodies

By johnboy - 4 June 2012 27

Territory and Municipal Services are extremely cross with animal rights activists who have been digging up the mass kangaroo graves from the recent cull:

The ACT Government has today condemned the actions of protestors who have dug up a kangaroo burial site in Kama Nature Reserve and removed carcases.

The pit has now been covered with extra soil and will not be used again.

“Our rangers today found that the pit site in Kama Nature Reserve near Coppins Crossing had been discovered by protestors who have illegally accessed the site. Protestors have dug through a metre of soil capping and removed and handled carcases, presumably with the intent of spreading misinformation about how our kangaroo cull is undertaken,” said Director, Parks and Conservation, Daniel Iglesias.

“While the ACT Government respects the rights of people to protest, this action is clearly insensitive and potentially dangerous.

Daniel Iglesias should at least be glad they’re limiting themselves to digging up the dead roos and not his family members.

What’s Your opinion?

Protestors, beware of the curse of Rootankhamun!

As much as I am against the cull, this is pretty funny 🙂

Skip diving, surely.

I do like the term ‘kangaroo burial site’ though, sounds vaguely like the kangaroos conduct their own services there. Next door to the elephants’ graveyard.

LOL!

I do believe that it is an offence to interfere with a corpse.

OMG people – get a life!!!!

We could always bury the protestors in the same spot?

The protesters are innocent; clearly the Zombaroo Apocalypse has begun.

How, even in a crazy protestor’s logic, was this a good idea?

Someone get these people a PR manager asap.

A slap and admonishment to wake up to themselves perhaps?

Well, ideally. But I’ll never understand why people who want to convince the general public of a point of view go out of their way to make themselves look as bonkers as possible and therefore taint their cause in the eyes of the people they’re trying to convince. Now people who may have been sympathetic to the protestors just see them as nutcases who dig up dead animals, and people who’ve disagreed with them all along get to smugly say “I told you so!” to everyone else.

I couldn’t give a toss about the actual issue (culls in Canberra? Please, exponentially more roos are shot out west all the time and no-one cares) but failing to consider how one’s actions negatively affect one’s cause always bemuses me.

One wonders, if given a number of other recent posts about the cull we will start seeing “decapitated” and “mutilated” kangaroo corpses suddenly appearing around the ACT with associated ‘moral panic’ posts then appearing on the Riotact? Let the astroturfing begin! Oh…… and wont somebody think of the children?
